We had wonderfully sunny and unseasonably warm weather in Ohio. I took the chance to show Luke where I gew up and went to school. We went to Wittenberg, and Young's Jersey Dairy and Yellow Springs. Luke got to try my favorite pizza - Cassano's and Skyline Chili of course.
Here we are at my parents' house with their dog Maverick. I wish Olive and Mav could meet and play together.
Beth's wedding reception... It was nice for Luke to meet a few more of my college freinds.
The trip to Ohio was great; but we were SO excited to be home and to see Olive of course! It wouldn't be long before Olive and Nola were together again, as we watched her the following weekend while our friends were visiting with their family.
I was excited to have Nola for the weekend. She's such a beautiful and sweet dog. I (half) jokingly say that I wan't another dog and this weekend would be a chance for me to see what it would actually be like with two.
The girls have an iteresting relationship. Olive LOVES Nola and Nola tolerates Olive. They got along well but I could tell that Olive wanted to romp and wrestle but Nola was not having any of that. Overall, she proved to be a calming influence for Olive. They ride quite well in the car together, although after loading in 170 lbs of Berner there really isn't room for much else.
Olive was able to teach Nola how to use the doggy-door.
We took advantage of a gloriously sunny Saturday to take the girls to the pumpkin patch on Sauvie Island, so they could pick out their perfect pumpkins. There were loads of other people there who had the same idea. But we made the best of it and got some cute photos of the girls. Olive is growing! In my eyes she's still just a pup but then I look at this picture and see that she is almost as big as Nola (4 yrs ans 100lbs)! Olive weighed in at 72.4 pounds at the vet recently and she's on her way to being all grown up. So much for that 15 lb ball of fuzz.
We loved having 2 Berners for the weekend, however I think I am good with just having Olive for now. Although, Olive loves the company of other dogs; I'm not sure our bed is big enough for 4.
